flag. according to the a.p., both attacks were triggered by a movie produced in the united states that was anti-muslim, made by an anti-muslim extremist. "on the record" is tracking the breaking news stories and will bring you breaking developments throughout the hour. september e day none of us will forget. we will remember that day with you. and why won't president obama meet with netanyahu? but first, an urgent warning. it is about our nation's debt. as if the threat of going over the fiscal cliff isn't bad enough, it now gets worse. if congress doesn't reach a budget deal, moody's will cut its triple-a realitying by one notch, so can congress strike a deal? and avoid this downgrade? senator john thune is on the budget finance committee. nice to see you. >> nice to see you, greta. >> greta: so. moody's says they doll this. >> this is the latest warning we have gotten. obviously, this is not the first time that we have been warned. this is the most predictable crisis we have ever had. we know exactly how serious the situation is, the debt just crossed the $16 trillion mark. we a
, a celebrity of the united states instead of the president. >> the president's decision not to meet with the prime minister of israel when the prime minister is here for the united nations session i think is a mistake, and it sends a message throughout the middle east that somehow we distanced ourselves from our friends. i think the exact opposite approach is what's necessary. >> what do you make of the republican view that the president has no time for prime minister netanyahu but time for "the view"? >> prime minister netanyahu is not in new york in the days the president is in new york. the president's not in new york on the days whe prime minister netanyahu will be in new york. the president just recently had a conversation with prime minister netanyahu that lasted more than an hour, i believe, and that was just one in countless conversations that they've had. >> you say that he's got schedules, that foreign leaders have schedules, but the president has blocked out time to appear on "the view" on tuesday. so he has time for whoopi goldberg but he doesn't have time for world lead
the united states, my new book that you mentioned, here come the black helicopters, u.n. global governance and the lack of freedom talks about treatise he's pushing which is taxing american oil wells offshore, billionaires throughout the world and using that money to go to the third world. going past foreign aid and actually taxing the united states internationally to give the money to the third world. that was at the core of the rio conference. and these schemes are floating around heavily and they lie at the core of obama's view. look, when two-thirds -- in 1980 one-third of our federal budget went to cash transfers to other people, money that we paid people. now it's two-thirds. two-thirds of it goes there. so when you have one percent of the population paying 42% of the tax and two-thirds of the tax going to other people, what do you call that but income redistribution? >> well, i hear you talk about it and others talk about it, you do did of it with a level of certainty and conviction, and i think is it resonating with the voters? there's a new nbc news wall street journal poll, in io
? the ambassador to the united states, susan rice says the attacks were. she claims the murders of four americans, including our ambassador, are a spontaneous reaction to the youtube video but libyan's president says she's wrong, he insists they are premeditated. this worldwide danger is far from over. >> there have been protests around the world over the last several days. why is it the u.s. seem so impotent? >> what sparked the recent violence was the airing on the internet of a very hate full, very offensive video. >> for the united states government to say that it was simply a spontaneous act, flies in the face of the facts. >> the way that the attacks took place, i have serious questions. it seems to be a military style, coordinated. >> this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned, predetermined. >> it seems to me that it is well beyond coincidence that all of this happened in connection with september 11th. >> people focus on the spark, the spark of reprehensible and irresponsible film is a spark, but it doesn't explain anything. >> it's approximately a reaction to this video and i
to be trouble and you represent the united states. i'm not sure why due need a warning for that one? >> it is not rocket science. it's been looking at trends and anything out that there will help you decide t 9/11 is one day you are supposed to increase security. you have to ask yourself why the benghazi consul late which is in the middle of the al-qaeda operating around there and he will sharia are and they had no forces, no security forces forever. they are depending militia forces to protect them. >> in view row, the united states government, the government said the protests there were the result of this youtube video and in the u.s. embassy evicinity sweated out offer aboll justs shortly after the protest began. now it is, according to her recording. they haven't released the sheik in our custody for the 1997 world trade center becoming. >> we have to be concerned there. either the administration is showing incredible in competition or they are destroying the truth to the american people, either one is horrible why would they? what's in it for them to dissport it. >> i think the
of a very hateful, very offensive video. >> for the united states government to say that it was simply a spontaneous act flies in the face of the facts. >> the way that the -- attacks took place, viserious questions. it seemed to be a military-style, coordinated. >> this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned and predetermined. >> it seems to me that it is well beyond coincidence that all of this happened in connection with september 11. >> i think people focus on the spark, the spark... is reprehens and i believe irresponsible, they assume is the spark. but it is not -- it doesn't explain anything. >> it is proximately, a reaction to the video, it's a hateful video. >> they are destroying the american economy, foreign policy is an embarrassment. we weren't prepared for attacks on our embassies on 9/11, blaming it on a youtube video. >> the plan was planned by foreigners, by people who -- who entered the country a few months ago. and they were planning this... criminal act... since their arrival. >> he's protested or sweeping not because people are watching this movie but ar
. >> this is a cover-up in the middle of a campaign, a cover-up related to the security of the united states of america, relating to the depths of four brave americans. >> if you're applying intelligence and common sense, the fact is this clearly was a terrorist attack. >> i think operate clearly it was a terrorist attack, because a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate. >> so this campaign of deceit was deployed, was put out there because obama has a re-election campaign, and the truth would make him a one-term president. so we can't have the truth. we can't have the truth about anything. we can't have the truth about the failures of his economic policies. we can't have the truth about the failure of his foreign policy. we can't have the truth about his overall failure as a president at anything. >> greta: and the hits keep coming and fast. former new hampshire governor john sununu ratchets it up, saying president obama is absolutely lazy and detached from his job. governor sununu joins us. nice to see you, governor. >> good to be here. how are you? >> greta: very well.
you are president of the united states, you are president of all the people. not just the people who voted for you. >> you've got to look at what the guy has talked about through the whole campaign. he believes that every american has to have skin in the game. has to have a stake. and he doesn't want what the president wants works i is a bigger, more bloated government that's taking more people's money and being more oppressive on people's lives. he wants to empower individuals through sacrifice and opportunity to get their lives as date as they can and be make america greater. >> the real story behind these comments is what is behind it is president obama's very deliberate attempt to do class warfare as part of his campaign strategy. it's president obama who has decided to divide the electorate down those levels. >> i get the general feeling that with more and more people becoming dependent on government, that by next july we could perhaps be so -- it will be dependence day, not independence day. this is not something i am just feeling alone. >> oh, come on. oh, come on. >> this cou
are angry in cairo and back here in the united states. your thoughts, sir, i know you knew the ambationz dorand had met him. very disturbing news. >> we near a critical period are in the united states and the region. the attacks and the tragic assassination of our ambassador in libya and three of his colleagues, is in large measure caused by the weakness and fecklessness of the obama administration's policies. al qaeda, the muslim brotherhood, in libya and egypt have seen weakness and acted on it. and the administration has done nothing today to correct the impression that the weak innocence our policy remains. i really think the analogy to tehran in 1979, before our embassy was taken hostage by the ayatollahs is right on the mark here. we are at a very, very dangerous point. and the president is not demonstrating appropriate american strength. >> greta: you know, there is so much attention, ambassador on what happened in libya, with the murder of our ambassador and three others and the attention, at the live pictures what have is going on at 4:00 a.m. in cairo. there have been protests
, disappear from his country. that's why this is a strategic moment for the united states, from -- across the broader middle-east. if we don't stand up here for our enters and our values, we'll see our interest and our values trashed all over the place. let's just take egypt and libya for a minute. the governments of those countries failed in their fundamental responsible to protect our diplomats and our embassy. yet, there is no word from the president on that failure t. leads to the issue whether elements of the libyan and egyptian governments were not compliceit in these actions. >> as we watch and continue to watch the pictures, you can't take your eyes off them. the very sad news, ambassador stevens, he did serve as a u.s. envoy to the libyan opposition in the revolution. only four months ago, he was appointed ambassador to libya. >> my name is chris stevens. i'm the new u.s. ambassador to libya. right now,im in washington, preparing for my assignment. as i walk around the monuments and memorials memorializing the courageous men and women who made america what it is, i am reminded th
the contact, because he knows it's not popular domestically in the united states. however good it is for his image internationally. so he did the absolute minimum and then he got out of town. >> greta: after the prime minister netanyahu gives his speech and goes back to israel, map out what you think will happen in the next couple weeks, if anything. >> well, i don't know. i don't necessarily think there's going to be anything spectacular before our election. i think israel understands that the only thing between iran and nuclear weapons as long as obama is president is the possibility of an israeli military strike. i think israel's decision one way or another on what to do will be based on physics and not politics. they will look at the iranian program and wait as long as they can, but they won't wait beyond that point. i think that has nothing to do with our electoral calendar. >> greta: and the variable here, of course, is the intelligence. how much time is there and, you know, we simply don't know. >> no. i think israel -- >> greta: it's been bad before, at least from my perspective, i d
